Micro-credentials: Driving teacher learning & leadership

Micro-credentials: Driving teacher learning & leadership

Teachers must help all students become adept critical thinkers, collaborators, and communicators, but to do so effectively, teachers need to devote significant time and effort to their own professional growth.

A potential solution for strengthening professional development is at hand: micro-credentials for educators.

In this paper supported by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, Barnett Berry of CTQ and Karen Cator of Digital Promise explore the potential of micro-credentialing to support teacher and leader development.

Two additional stacks in development include Performance Assessment for Learning with the Center for Collaborative Education (CCE) and Teachers as Leaders of Professional Learning with the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE).
